A Kingdom that Cannot Move

What does the Brexit vote mean to you? If you are a born-again child of God, it shouldn’t mean much at all.

Today the Wall Street Journal headline pronounces, “Investors Shaken as U.K. Votes to Exit EU.” While investors and voters may be shaken by this development and other bewildering world events, remember that we live in a transitional world that will never rest until Jesus comes to establish His eternal kingdom. Hebrews 12:28 reminds us about this more important headline:

“Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved [shaken], let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.”

Since you are looking forward to a future kingdom governed perfectly by Jesus Christ forever, how should you respond to the uncertainty that marks our present world?

  1. You should continue to seek grace from God, depending upon Him to enable you to live a consistent, peaceful, fruitful Christian life, regardless of the headlines, Brexit or otherwise.
  2. You should serve God in the way that pleases Him, refusing to let the cares of this world pull you away.
  3. You should worship God, with deep respect for His power over all things, even in this uncertain era.

Have the headlines distracted you? Have you forgotten to ask God for the grace you need to live with unshakable confidence today? Have you fallen away from faithful gospel ministry? Has your reverence and awe for God diminished as you take in the turbulent, overwhelming headlines of world events?

Get your focus on God and His kingdom. Don’t let world events distract you from His unshakable kingdom.

    I agree. ” Even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Luke 12:7… It is easy to get caught up in the investigation of the conspiracy theorists. People making movies based on the Book of Enoch and theological debates of when the rapture of the church is and so forth and forget about the fact that you are saved as a Christian. We should be more worried about the souls that need to hear the good news that was revealed to us by the Holy Spirit. Who Jesus Christ is and where He is should be the most important things on our minds… especially in these times of advancing confusion.
    I got so caught up in these things at one time that I was so anxious about saving money for survival packs and looking for a place in the mountains and things like that. Getting into debates about salvation through works and salvation by grace and KJV vs. the Alexandrian translations. Preparation is important, understanding the truth of the history of our bible and how it affects our doctrines is important, understanding the grace of God is very important… but to the point of anxiety and unhealthy debates?
    Go back to the basics….. Are you truly saved?? Then if you you are, understand this,” Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life,”Jn 5:24..”….and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matt.28:20
